PITTSBURG — A snowmobile accident on Thursday night led to the arrest of a local man on charges of operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol and with a suspended driver’s license.

Jayson Wagner, 42, of Pittsburg, was riding south on Primary Trail 138 around 7:05 p.m. when he failed to make a left turn after crossing Carr Ridge Road and crashed into a group of trees, according to police.

Despite the collision, Wagner reportedly did not sustain injuries.

Emergency medical services attended to him at the scene before transporting him to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook for further evaluation of an unspecified condition.

An investigation by Pittsburg Police, fire and rescue teams, and a New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Conservation Officer revealed that Wagner was intoxicated while operating the snowmobile.

His riding partner collaborated the account.

Following the investigation, Wagner was arrested at the hospital.

Authorities have taken this incident as an opportunity to remind individuals that penalties for snowmobiling under the influence are as severe as those for driving a car while impaired.
